- Margot Robbie (Mary Queen of Scots) – There would be a great symmetry for both acting categories to go to actresses playing the Queen of England. But more than that, Robbie gave a truly transformative performance in a film that showed a very different side to Elizabeth.
The BAFTA Winner
- Rachel Weisz (The Favourite)
|A wonderful biopic that is clearly about the man and not the mission. Don't expect lots of glory shots of rockets or planets, just a man and his single minded ambition.
|Mary Queen of Scots
|Two stunning performances from Ronan and Robbie complement a beautifully crafted (if a little one sided) retelling of how England and Scotland finally became united.
|A quirky period tale of two cousins fighting for the attentions of the Queen. Coleman and Stone are superb and the direction inventive, but the story sags quite heavily before a polarising end.
|Initially Vice appears to be just an excuse to re-do the Big Short formula and for Bale to dust off his Batman voice, but in fact it is another fascinating docu-dramedy from the master of this new genre, Adam McKay.
